I'm 35 years old with an 11 year old daughter. 3 weeks ago I got out of a dangerous and unhealthy relationship (of course it didn't start that way.. they never do) and now I'm focusing on getting my life back together.
I'm bi-polar II rapid cycler, deal with anxiety and OCD.
As a child we moved around a lot and I have never really got the people skills needed to interact with people. So here I am looking online.
I'm currently living in Saint Catharines On, been here for 10 years after moving from BC and escaping my mother.
I love to read and the one show that I CAN NOT miss is supernatural. I'm huge into music and have it on as often as I can.
I like writing poetry though there hasn't been anyone that has looked at them. They are private and hard to share because they are raw emotions and I'm scared what others will think.
If you think we could make a match let me know. If it doesn't work out it's all good :D
So my friends page has become nearly silent so I'm here I am!
★ Brandie or Andie
★ 24 year old girl
★ Lives in South Florida and slaves away at Bealls
★ I have more interests than I can keep up with
★ Very fandom-y (Currently into Elder Scrolls and Minecraft)
★ Enjoys web, graphic and interior design as well as drawing, writing and making jewelry
★ Mostly content, but sometimes depressed (anxiety, negative thinking blaaaah)
★ Posts about everyday stuff, things I make, fandom, random stuff, memes and other stuff
★ Loves snapchat, twitter, tumblr, instagram and sometimes pintrest.
★ So I thought I'd add this here since this is a fantasy friending comm, but I love the medival fantasy genre (thanks to Skyrim for that one) Anything to do with elves, dragons and knights in shining armor, I will love. (Edit: horrible pun was not intended. I'm cracking up right now.)
I wanted to keep this short and sweet buuuut, if you have questions, please ask :D
I am a long term Livejournaller - as you can see I have been around since 2003!
Anyway, I am always looking for interesting people to chat to on LJ!
I am 33, engaged to Steve, I have a total of 5 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in theatre, film&TV production, and teaching. I work part time as an in-house supply teacher of drama at a local "posh" secondary school where I have worked for the past 4 years, I also work as an actress and "real person" (not a wafer) model, run my own theatre company, and generally zoom round with a chaotic but great life.
I live in a small fishing town on the Southwest coast of England.
I am not exactly what you expect of a 30-something English female, I am an utter tomboy, even my nonconconformist friends find me whacky, I am an extrovert, and an unashamed "luvvie".
I love all kinds of stuff: history (accepted and speculative), science (accepted and specualtive), performing arts (obviously), period and gothic clothing, nature, photography, music of a wide variety of genres (except modern pop/ rap - eeek!), the paranormal, past lives, politics (I am more than a slight leftie, hehe), comparative religions, scifi, fantasy, otherkin, medieval stuff, films (period/ historical/ scifi/ dystopian / fantasy), I dont watch much TV but I love Game of Thrones and Spartacus, organic gardening when I have the time, survival skills, costuming, being silly, going out with my mad friends on mad costumed escapades (one of our recent oens was to go and see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in costume, and before the film we turned the beach into a Hunger Games arena and those of us costumed as "Tributes"- yes including me- had a battle to the bitter end), classical and historical literature, antique books, swimming in the sea, dreams, high elves, LARP, living history, martial arts, combat-based stunting (which I do for theatre and film).
Fandoms: Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, Spartacus, Tolkien, Robyn Young, Les Miserables...
Things that irritate me beyond words: slavishly-blind conformity, commercialism, "cant do" attitudes, racism, people picking internet arguments about nothing, facism, cities, enclosed spaces, plastic bag rustling noises, people who think it is clever to put others down, our government, effort-avoidance, being told that because I like costuming I should like hentai, dishonest people, and willful ignorance.
I am around a lot, but of late it has been sporadic - sometimes I post three times in a day (especially if catching up) and other times nothing for a week. This is because of the rather mad nature of my theatrical career. Earlier this year I wrote and directed a theatre show which went utterly huge, landed out-of-the-blue offer sponsorship from London for a second run, with West End noises and a film in the offing. I was off LJ for two-three weeks with that, I did explain why I would be away from LJ for a few weeks upfront, but that caused a lot of people to defriend me.
Please be aware I do have a busy life and I have not abandoned LJ in literally 10 years, but there may be times with a busy theatre and modelling year ahead, and the film starting based on my theatre show, that I may not be around for a week or two. I WILL be back! I respect that other people have lives outside of their computers, and ask for the same respect.
I read the friends list whenever on LJ, and leave comments, whenever I have anything to say, whether that comment be a saga, or a short sentence.

I am a disabled adult and still live with my parents and grandfather. I have V.C.F.S/22q and cerebral palsy. I also admit that I am obsessed. I want to get better but it's difficult. I write a lot about health, depression, family , and movies. I love the cinema. I enjoy watching horror movies, drama and musicals. I enjoy listing to a lot of soundtracks, pop and musicals ( of course ) . Spiritual wise I am Pagan but would like to be Wiccan. Also sort of looking for a spiritual teacher if at all possible. I believe in things like twin flames, spirits, ghosts, other worlds. I write a lot about my other worlds a lot in my journal. It's my primary focus , unless I am writing about physical family stuff. I enjoy talking about being across the veil . Tarot and other types of readings. That kind of thing.
I can be relatively eccentric at times. I don't like loud things or being in crowds but in general though I think I am a good person. I love music and books very much. My aspiration is to be an author and I studied music for twenty years.
Hope to meet some of you soon.

How a close friend would describe you in one sentence: A crazy, social, comfortably awkward, compassionate person.
Are you more a sci-fi or fantasy person? I lean more towards scifi. But I do like fantasy.
Do you also write sci-fi/fantasy? I dabble in both.
Why are you attracted to the genre? Because it's amazingly connected to science and with fantasy, I have a fascination with folklore.
Other than reading (of course), what do you like to do? Write, Blog, watch anime and read comic books, dance, go out and explore new places, macabre things, watch medical and criminology documentaries, make-up and take care of animals.
Do you have a website or something else we should check out?
Hey I'm James, from the UK.
Definite Gaming addict.
US TV Show obsessive.
Almost definite Nerd/Geek.
I guess I'm looking for friends to connect with, not just someone who never posts or comments. That said I comment/post only when I feel like I have something to say so I can seem to vanish for long hiatus like sessions, Just because I don't post to my journal doesn't mean I never read yours :)
I can be random or funny, sometimes even both which is always fun.
I'm not religious in the least, though I do know some folk who are.
Fun fact: I've been working on this post for hours because I sometimes really lack any sort of motivation.
I do like to post youtube links of things that amuse me but I will mostly hide these behind a cut, not always but mostly.
I will also sometimes post pictures of myself and other cool things (not that I'm saying I'm cool :P)
but these follow the same rules as my youtube posts.
In summary then, I want to meet new people who will actually take an interest in my life and want to be a friend.
I hope you enjoyed reading and I look forward to meeting you.

How a close friend would describe you in one sentence: Crazy, sincere, arty crackpot born in the wrong century, the wrong body and probably the wrong universe.
Are you more a sci-fi or fantasy person? Fantasy
Do you also write sci-fi/fantasy? I have written one Celtic fantasy novel which when I get around to doing a final draft on, I will send to publishers.

Name: Stephen (pen name, really, I'm female |D)

Christina Aguilera, Eisley, Gogol Bordello, Franz Ferdinand, The White Stripes, Coldplay, certain musicals (Thoroughly Modern Millie being a favourite), Cake, Akira Yamaoka, Shakira, Billy Joel, select Annie Lennox and Joni Michell, Gorillaz, Imogen Heap, Keane, The Killers, Katy Perry, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rasputina, Sigur Ros, The Arcade Fire, Cage the Elephant (who doesn't, right?), t.A.T.u., Abba, A Perfect Circle.

How a close friend would describe you in one sentence: She's tenacious with her loyalty, and far be it from me to tell her that all the love she gives may not be returned in kind.
Are you more a sci-fi or fantasy person? Fantasy, but I'm slowly getting in sci-fi overall.
Do you also write sci-fi/fantasy? I write fantasy, primarily. :>
Why are you attracted to the genre? I grew up in a very restricted environment. I was raised Calvinist, church twice a week, youth group, AWANA, and a private Christian school. Most "out of the norm" books were outlawed. For instance, Holes wasn't allowed because the same author had written a book called There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom, and this is totally not kosher. However, I managed to sneak a Dragonlance book one day, and then a few years later I saw a girl I knew of only in name reading it. We bonded, shared interests and books, and became great friends. The power of literature, and even genre—I owe it my adolescence!
Other than reading (of course), what do you like to do? I'm a big fan of studying cinema. I'm going to be taking classes to be a Certified Nursing Assistant, and I eventually want to take blood in order to keep myself afloat financially before breaking out as a novelist, screenwriter, actress, and a hopeful directing student once I get a little more money and apply for FAFSA. Pell grants, that is.
Do you have a website or something else we should check out? Mmm, nope! Just my personal journal, but I'm very keen on keeping that separate from this. It'd just super cluttered, and that's icky!
Age: 20 something
Favorite music: Right at this moment.... I've got Pandora playing an odd collection of comedy and kid's songs.... Stephen lynch, tripod, barenaked ladies and very rarely ... raffie.... Odd. I'm also a bit of a Broadway Baby. Some country. Good country. Like... the kind with melodies and... (OMG) harmonies. I have a soft spot for the Rider's in the Sky.
Favorite book (or series): Favorite? I don't know... I'll go with the one that taught me that books had really cool things in them. It's 'Magic Kingdom for Sale-Sold" by Terry Brooks. I'm reading the Dresden Files at this moment. My bookshelf has this strange organization going. The Harry Potter with the Lord of the rings. The Dresden Files with The Jaz Parks CIA vampire story. The Terry Pratchett Runs rampant next to the Christopher Moore. Somewhere in there are the Aretmis Fowl and Bartemaeus trilogy. Mostly Fantasy, but some sci-fi in there
How a close friend would describe you in one sentence: My boss keeps telling me I'm quirky. I've yet to figure out if that's a good thing from your boss....
Are you more a sci-fi or fantasy person? More Fantasy. But I'm a bit of a Trekkie too. And By a bit I mean I have been known to yell at people for not knowing that Picard commanded the Enterprise D and E after the first one crashed in Generations...
Do you also write sci-fi/fantasy? I don't know about write. I got into NANOWRIMO this past year as a way to force myself into being social and meeting people since I moved last year and Suck at getting to know people. So... I'm most of the way through a super hero novel with a few more ideas for others in my head.
Why are you attracted to the genre? The places and possibilities.
Other than reading (of course), what do you like to do? I'm a bit crafty. Bead shops are bad. Really bad.... And if I had time I'd find a group to sing with, unfortunately I picked a job with hours least conducive to having a social life.
Do you have a website or something else we should check out? Um...no? not really.
